WANdisco prides itself on its wealth of talent and its retention record. This is important given the competition for good software engineers. We have a strong track record of keeping people challenged, motivated and enthused by the complex scenarios our technology addresses.
In addition to providing work that stretches our people, we operate a mentoring scheme for those joining us fresh from university or early in their careers. Our young engineers are given the chance to shadow and work alongside data scientists with PhDs, many of whom have 30 or more years’ real-world experience. Our Chief Data Scientist, Inventor and Co-founder, Dr Yeturu Aahlad, who developed the complex mathematical algorithm that forms the basis of WANdisco’s patented DConE technology, is well known for being highly approachable. Our younger employees say that their day-to-day contact with Dr Aahlad and other senior engineers is more inspiring and useful than weeks of classroom training. Dr Aahlad is recognised as a global authority on distributed computing. He has a PhD in the subject from the University of Texas, Austin, as well as a BSc in Electrical Engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Madras.
